Project Worship: What does the New Testament really say?

Posted by Amy on January 18, 2018

We’re halfway through the 6pm series ‘Revolutionary Worship’. In this series William Taylor has made a pretty big claim about the word ‘worship’ in the New Testament. You may have picked it up in last week’s blog post. The idea is that the word ‘worship’ in the New Testament is “not predominantly used of what we do when we meet together in church.” Rather, worship is about the whole of life lived in response to God’s grace to us in Jes Continue reading…

At the 6pm we’ve just started our January series on the subject of worship. We caught up with William Taylor to ask him why he’s decided to tackle this subject.

William - why have you chosen to do a series on worship?

Jackson Burt reflects on Sunday’s sermon from Matthew 10:34-42.

Isn’t it strange that Christmas cards say things like, “All is calm”, or “Wishing you joy and peace”, when Jesus clearly said, “Do not think I have come to bring peace to the earth”?

PREACHING MATTERS: William Taylor, Preaching at Christmas

Posted on December 4, 2017

How do we prepare to preach at Christmas time?
With such a familiar message, what is most important to say?

Praise God that at Christmas time many people still willingly walk into churches who don't know the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. With the incredible news of the incarnation to proclaim - God with us - how do we make the most of the opportunities to preach the gospel?

I Learnt to Love to Read

I love to read. Or perhaps, more accurately, I have learnt to love to read. It may not always be the most natural thing to pick up a book. But when I do I’m glad; I open the pages and enter a most wonderful world – of thought. Why do I…
